In your own little world you are calling Canon a monopoly. No one
is forcing you to buy the lens. Bottom line is Canon is a business,
and if they can charge a premium for a lens that the competition
does not have, more power to them. If price is a concern buy the
Tamron or Sigma 18-50/2.8. As far as the movie analogy, want your
own popcorn, wait until it is available to rent or purchase the
movie, then you can eat your own popcorn to your heart's content.
IMO, IS is over rated. I have three lenses with IS and I never use

why do you keep paying the premium for lenses with IS if you don't use the feature?

perhaps because canon has a monoply on these lenses :)?
